Can't get into the car after remote-start

0 votes
Hello, I purchased a second-hand Subaru WRX STi 2017 (manual, normal key) with Fortin Evo-one(?) installed and FTXDUO remote control. Remote start works ok (thank you for that - a great product!). The only problem is that after remote start I can not get into the car - buttons of original key do not work. If I press Unlock button on FTX, the car unlocks and then locks up immediately. I have to remote-stop the engine, only then I can use original key to unlock the door and get into the car. Something must be missing here, but what? Or am I doing something incorrectly?

I recommend you bring the vehicle to a professional shop/installer so they can check the system over and fix the doorlock issue while remote started.

Thanks for your answer! Unfortunately, there may be no installers nearby specialising in Fortin products. Many things I am abe to fix myself, just need some tips where to pay the attention to.

It is a wiring issue, programming issue, wrong settings or something else?
